A mini alarm system is a compact size alarm that is used in situations where a normal alarm system does not fit or is not desirable. The mini systems often work stand-alone and can therefore be placed somewhere quickly.
When to choose a mini alarm system?
A mini alarm system is often used in places where either the internet or wifi connection is not accessible or there is no power supply. In other cases it is better to opt for a normal system, because the possibilities for use are much wider.
Which models in mini format are there?
Mini alarm systems are available in many different models, which we describe below so that you can be sure of the right purchase.
PIR motion detector mini alarm
A PIR motion detector is a commonly used product for detecting movements. The mini alarm systems are available with a receiver that gives a signal when there is movement or with a built-in SIM card or WiFi connection so that you can also be notified of the report at another location.
Magnetic contact mini alarm
You can place a magnetic contact mini alarm on a door or frame to receive a notification when the parts are moved away from each other, for example when the door opens.
Other sensors of a mini alarm system
In addition to the most commonly used, such as the PIR motion detector and magnetic contact described above, there are also mini alarm systems with a different sensor. There are variants with a water sensor, temperature sensor.
How do the mini alarm systems work?
A mini alarm system often works with its own built-in siren or internal connection option such as a SIM card or Wi-Fi connection. Depending on the mini alarm model, you will therefore hear a sound signal when the sensor is triggered or you will receive a notification on your telephone when the system has its own connection option.
What are the pros and cons?
A mini alarm system has the great advantage that it can be installed quickly. Furthermore, due to the often stand-alone operation, a mini alarm system can be used independently of the existing internet connection or power on location.
The mini alarm systems are often very limited in use due to the limited functionalities and expansion options. In most cases it is therefore better to opt for an ordinary alarm system. The normal models now also have more solutions for locations with no or poor coverage.
